Tad (Meisterhaus) and I came to agreement through numerous emails to the following terms
a.. I had to send him a bank draft right away for $1500.00 for the purchase of Meisterhaus Watchemstopnstare (Whisper) honoring my part of the agreement. Tad cashed the Bank Draft late December.
b.. Tad was to provide me with a written contract like any reputable breeder would and the AKC papers to transfer Whisper to a co-ownership until she was finished in the USA, which he has failed to do on both accounts.
c.. After the transfer to a co-ownership I agreed to pay her show expenses, food cost(not board), her clearances (hips and eyes) and vet bills....Tad entered her into shows in his name and expects me to pay for them in FEB. I get an email in Feb saying Whisper did well in the INDY shows and I had no idea as he ignore my emails about Whisper. He had told me he was busy with the sale of his business and a litter of Whippets so how could he have the time to show WHISPER and not do the paper work for me. He never consulted me in anyway about the shows.
d.. I get another email with Whisper CERF certifcate showing PPM Iris to Iris in mid FEB. It seems that she was already had her eyes tested as a young dog it doesn't show that on his Website and it was something Tad neglected to tell me. He also led me to believe her mother was clear. Cerf has advised me through emails that Basenji with PPM Iris to Iris is under breeder option D3a and can not be advertised as clear. None the less he withheld information about Whisper and lead me on about her mother.
e.. While searching the internet I find that Tad also neglect to disclose information about Whisper show history which in a big deal on it's own. I ask Tad to let me out of the deal as the lies were getting many now and he really doesn't see me as a co-owner which was the first part of the deal.
f.. I have filed a complaint with the AKC after making several offers to him. He did make a very general offer to me to total up some expenses including the show ones and send me a cheque. Much to my surprise he charged me for a set of Shows in March which again he had Whisper entered in without me knowing, secondly $740.00 for board something we agreed I wouldn't have to pay for Whisper just her food cost in our agreement. I got a cheque for $433.01 late FEB. A cheque I reurned uncashed to him.

I am very very very angry with the way I have been treated by A Tad Brooks so I am reviewing my legal options but I felt everyone out there deserves to know what kind of person this man is and they should stay away from him.

#1 General Comment

Basenji/Whisper

AUTHOR: L. B. Corley - (United States of America)

I have read the post by Harry of Canada regarding Meisterhaus, and would like to comment on his remarks.
I spoke with Mr. Brooks, and two other breeders, and they shared the same story regarding deals with Harry St Johns for purchase of one of their dogs. Each time Harry made an offer, he would change his mind after months had gone by, and after time and money had been spent preparing the puppy to travel to Canada to live with Harry.
I have never known anyone to complain about any of the Basenjis or Whippets bred by Meisterhaus, and when I saw this posting, I felt I needed to file a rebuttal.

Harry has spoken with the AKC regarding Whisper, and they were clear as to the fact that Whisper belonged to Meisterhaus.Upon reading Harry's statement, even he stated that Meisterhaus attempted to reimburse him for the amount of money left from the $1,500, which shows fairness and honesty on the part of Meisterhaus. Evidently, Harry is unaware as to the costs of training/showing any breed dog.

Being that this is not the only time Harry has changed his mind after purchasing a dog, I question his motive, as well as any statements he has made.The ruling has been made by AKC, and it is for that reason alone, I feel this posting should be removed, so as not to taint the good name of Meisterhaus/A. Tad Brooks.My best to Harry, and I sincerely hope he has found the unconditional love a furry friend gives.

AUTHOR: Harry - (Canada)

The ownership of this dog will remain in dispute for years and that will be for at least five years so you might want to stay away from anything to do with her. Tad I think you would settle this for her sake as I the law in respect to contacts in kentucky is at least 5 years. So she could be an old dog before you will know what might happen with her if you don't provide me with a street address so we can settle this in court. Also if your buying a Meisterhaus dog don't believe Tad about health issues and he has been know to infact lie.

AUTHOR: Harry - (Canada)

Tad continues to keep his dog in his name and my money. he doesn't answer his phone or return my calls. He never responds to my emails. He thinks he can keep my money and his dog. I am looking for street location address for A Tad Brooks Louisville Kentucky so I can proceed to have a subponea serve to him for court action. Right now all I have is two P.O box addresses for him. If someone can help me that would be great and maybe they help me find a good lawayer in Louisville also.
